Check Out Arcade Fires Original Funeral Art And The Story Behind It
Sep 15, 2014 10:16am | StereoGum

We spent the weekend celebrating the 10th anniversary of Arcade Fire’s Funeral, and we weren’t the only ones. Billboard’s tribute included an interview with Tracy Maurice, the artist behind the album’s cover art. Maurice — who also did Neon Bible’s cover art and that much-shared Funeral mural in Brooklyn — shared early drafts of the artwork, which you can see up above. She also told the story of the artwork’s creation:


Nekrofilth on tour, playing Acheron tonight (dates, LP stream)
Sep 15, 2014 10:14am | Brooklyn Vegan

by Ian Chainey

Cleveland nasties Nekrofilth are currently on tour. The filthy punkified death/thrashers are spreading their putridity across places like Chicago, Toronto, and Montreal. Tonight (9/15), they'll play NYC's the Acheron with Skull and Crypter for an Invisible Oranges-presented show. Tickets are available now. The remaining dates of their tour appear below.

Nekrofilth have built up a fanbase of sleaze-hungry metalheads that like it old, rotten, and worm-eaten. The band hit a new high/low with 2013's Devil's Breath, a furiously charging wall of buzz that was equal parts Repulsion and Macabre and early Dwarves. The song title "I'm a Degenerate" should give you an idea as far as the lyrical themes are concerned. The band's members have logged time in Nunslaughter, Apartment 213, and Masakari. You can check out an interview we did with Zack Rose on Invisible Oranges late last year. Bring your best grave digging attire and leave your conscience at the door.

All of the dates along with Nekrofilth's Devil's Breath appear below.

Watch Mount Eerie Play New Song Dragon
Sep 15, 2014 10:09am | StereoGum

In 2012, Mount Eerie gave us two excellent albums — Clear Moon and Ocean’s Roar — and for his next trick, Phil Elverum will release a double album called Sauna. Now you can watch him perform a Sauna track called “Dragon,” recorded during an acoustic session for the Pinball Session. The format gives us a good chance to soak in his lyrics, which are steeped in nature imagery; though considering the way Elverum works, this could end up sounding more like a black metal song by the time we hear it on the album. Watch it below and look for Mount Eerie on tour.


Pretty love machine: how Youth Code are dragging EBM back from the dead
Sep 15, 2014 10:06am | Fact Magazine

Youth Codes new record A Place To Stand might have just been conceived as a stopgap between last years self-titled debut and the follow-up due next Spring, but it feels like a giant leap for the band, pushing their harsh take on body music into new realms of intensity.

Six months after they started dating, Sara Taylor and Ryan William George founded Youth Code to play a show at the store Taylor works at, Los Angeles Vacation Vinyl. Now, just two years later, A Place To Stand confirms theyve grown into a fearsome proposition. Recorded with production assistance from Joshua Eustis, the man behind Telefon Tel Aviv and a sometime live member of Nine Inch Nails, side one lines up four new tracks offering a scorched-earth take on Wax Trax-style electro-industrial that nonetheless point out to influences as diverse as Depeche Modes Construction Time Again and Whitehouses Birdseed. On the flip, meanwhile, we find four remixes from a diverse assortment of allies: Sanford Parker of experimental metal groups Buried At Sea and Corrections House; Sub Pop-signed noise-rap group Clipping; electro-goth stalwarts God Module; and dark techno mainstay Juan Mendez, aka Silent Servant, whose effort is exclusively streaming below. On paper, a bit of a hotchpotch, but as a listen, it flows surprisingly smooth.

Both Taylor and George have roots in hardcore and punk rock. He used to sing for the Californian straight edge group Carr...

Fan rushes stage and attacks members of Widespread Panic watch
Sep 15, 2014 10:01am | Cosequence Of Sound

A scary moment unfolded during Widespread Panics set at the Phases of the Moon Music Festival on Sunday when a fan rushed the stage and assaulted several members of the band and its crew.

As JamBase points out, the man jumped on stage during the band’s performance of “Bust It Big”. He began screaming and lunged at several different members of the band — at one point, he crashed into drummer Todd Nance’s kit and appeared to hit Nance in the face with his drum sticks.

According to JamBase, the concert was paused for several moments as members of the band went backstage to compose themselves. However, they were ultimately able to finish the set.

Watch fan-shot footage of the attack below.

Stream Terry Malts Insides EP (Stereogum Premiere)
Sep 15, 2014 10:00am | StereoGum

Terry Malts have spent the past four years touring hard and kicking out dense, jumpy pop-punk tracks topped off by a thick glaze of guitar noise. Insides, a new 7-inch EP, compiles all three of the San Francisco trio’s Slumberland singles plus a cover of “Hidden Bay” by New Zealand’s the Chills. It’s a fine introduction to Terry Malts’ echo-chamber garage jams, so get familiar below.

Amy Winehouse statue unveiled in Camden
Sep 15, 2014 9:57am | Fact Magazine

A life-size statue of Amy Winehouse has been unveiled in her old stomping grounds of Camden Town.

The bronze figure, sculpted by Scott Eaton, depicts the London singer with her signature beehive and lip piercing as well as a Star of David necklace referencing her Jewish roots.

It’s a reasonable likeness, we reckon, although there’s something a bit skewiff in the face  is it the nose? Head to the Stables Market to judge for yourself. The unveiling of the statue on Sunday, three years after her death, coincided with what would have been her 31st birthday.

Speaking at the event, her dad Mitch said the singer was “in love with Camden”. “It’s a day of incredibly mixed emotions,” he said. “They don’t put statues up for people who are with us anymore so it reinforces the fact that physically she’s gone but spiritually she’ll never leave us. I feel sad, very, very sad. We shouldn’t be here but we are, this is the reality and we’ve just got to make the most of it. So this statue is part of making the most of it. Getting people to come here, spend some time with Amy and put a flower in her hair and remember her in a very positive way. That for me is wonderful.”

Run The Jewels Oh My Darling Dont Cry
Sep 15, 2014 9:55am | StereoGum

Hopefully, you’ve already got 10/28 circled in red a couple of times on your mental calendar. That’s the day that Run The Jewels, the duo of El-P and Killer Mike, release RTJ2, their second album as a duo, and this thing is practically guaranteed to swallow up the universe. After sharing the monstrously intense first single “Blockbuster Night Part 1,” the duo has now dropped a free download of the album track “Oh My Darling Don’t Cry” as part of the Adult Swim Singles Series. It is an absolute beast of a song, with Mike and El continuing to gel and tag-teaming some ultra-vicious bars. And it features the noisemaking talents of Michael Winslow, who you might know as Larvelle Jones, the guy who made all the noises with his mouth in the Police Academy movies. (El was trying to figure out how to get Winslow on his album for a long time on Twitter, so his appearance is a triumph, just like everything else about this song.) Stop whatever you’re doing and download the song below.


Death From Above 1979 – The Physical World
Sep 15, 2014 9:52am | CMJ

A full decade has passed since the release of Death From Above 1979s now legendary Youre A Woman, Im A Machine, an album often credited, alongside the early work of bands like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Strokes, with inventing a hard-edged, dance-punk vocabulary that characterized much of early-Aughts indie rock. However, Death From Above 1979 displayed an interest in rock riffs that also argued that they had something in common with classic rock revivalist bands of the same era, although their fans would certainly and staunchly deny it.

Time (if not money) has been almost brutally unkind to those revivalist bands, like Jet and Wolfmother, once adored by junior high school students with Led Zeppelin t-shirts. What has always set Death From Above 1979 apart from other classic-rock-indebted bands was their undeniable edge, a hormonal and razor-sharp sense of unrest that resulted in a record that is as abrasive as it is catchy. Youre A Woman, Im A Machine is just scary enough to make it one of those rare albums that does not age with its genre or its era, but instead remains a unique and increasingly vital piece of work.

When a band returns from such a lengthy hiatus and vows to put out new music, as Death From Above 1979 have, fans cant help but worry at the prospect of being served up a watered-down version of the thing they once loved, thus forcing them to reassess their love for the band or even the band itself. That worry becomes ...

Coastgaard release new single (stream it), playing Brooklyn Night Bazaar with Here We Go Magic
Sep 15, 2014 9:49am | Brooklyn Vegan

Brooklyn band Coastgaard are currently working on their new album, Derecho, which should be out in early 2015. In the interim have given us a taste of what's to come via new single, "Black White Fuzz." Though the title might have you expecting something noisy, the new song is actually sparkling guitar pop, an update of the baroque sounds of The Zombies or The Left Banke. It makes its debut in this post.

You can catch Coastgaard live here in NYC this Friday (9/19) at Brooklyn Night Bazaar where they play with White Bike and headliners Here We Go Magic. Like most BKNB shows, it's free. You can RSVP to skip the line.

"Black White Fuzz" stream, below...

Run The Jewels enlist Police Academy sound FX whiz Michael Winslow for latest single

Police Academy> sound FX wiz Michael Winslow for latest single" width="685" height="365" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-228589" />

El-P and Killer Mike reveal the next piece of RTJ2.

Last night, El-P teased the existence of this one: “wouldn’t it be weird if tomorrow someone dropped a song that had a guest robot voice performed by michael winslow of police academy on it?”

‘Oh My Darling Don’t Cry’ sees El-P and Killer Mike trading verses over a warped-as-ever beat, with Winslow’s “guest robot voice” adding another mechanical touch to the proceedings. Stream/download the single (courtesy Adult Swim’s Singles series) below.

RTJ2 will be released on October 27/28 via Nass Mass Appeal label. Along with being a free download, the album will be available in various deluxe packages, including some hilariously expensive ones that culminate with the $10 million “RUN THE JEWELS RETIREMENT PLAN PACKAGE.”
